The Canucks are rapidly gaining points. Vancouver added 12 points to their lead, thanks to a six-game winning streak. Those wins were not enough to change the team's standing in the Pacific Division, though, but they did cut the gap from the above sitting San Jose to one point. Vancouver is currently sitting last with 30 points. In their previous two games, the Canucks beat Columbus by one puck (4-3) and confidently took points from San Jose (5-2).
Toronto seems to have performed well, but they could do better. The Leafs have three wins in their last five games, 5-4 over Columbus, 5-4 over Chicago and 5-1 over Edmonton. In the other two games, however, they suffered defeats. First, the club lost to Winnipeg 3-6 and then to Tampa Bay 3-5. Because of this, the club lost the leading position in the Atlantic Division, letting the nearest pursuer go forward. By the way, the rivals share the same number of points (42).
Expert Betting Tips
Of course, the bookies have opted for the Leafs, but don't write off the Canucks early. Vancouver has a five-match winning streak on their home arena, while Toronto has three wins and two losses on the road. We think that the home team will fight back, if not in regulation time, then in overtime. To be on the safe side, we suggest betting on their double chance.
Prediction: Vancouver will not lose.
